9th August, 2006
Subaru has confirmed that premium versions of its 2007 Liberty and Outback models will feature the revolutionary SI-Drive system.
Subaru Intelligent Drive offers the option of three different drive experiences in one car.
The modes are easily selected using a centre console dial, or steering wheel controls.
For those wanting to achieve optimum fuel consumption and ride comfort in stop-start traffic around town, or cruising on the freeway, Intelligent mode is activated by simply pressing the button. By accelerating gently and noting an Eco gauge on the instrument cluster, drivers can achieve maximum economy.
Sport mode is activated by turning the button left. It is ideal for everyday flowing traffic, including on urban roads.
Sport # mode is activated by turning the button right. It is aimed at producing great car response for enthusiastic drivers on open roads.
Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “SI-Drive is a simple, easy to use system that produces distinct driver benefits. There are visual cues in each mode that help the driver attune to the individual mode.
“As the name suggests, if Subaru Intelligent Drive is used intelligently, and the driver interacts with the attributes of each mode, it produces a fantastically satisfying drive.”
The 2007 Liberty and Outback models will be launched in the first week of September.
